Colour Me Local Natural Dye Workshop

Oct 14, 2019 | Events, News, Workshops

October 19, 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm @ The Alder Eco Arts Hub

*NOTE: The workshop and planning session is now full.
Our Colour Me Local workshops are back! This Saturday, join us at our studio for a session to learn about natural dye processes, including mordanting and colour-shifting. Get experimental with us – this workshop is a fun, relaxing opportunity for you to explore the magic of dyeing with natural plants.
 
This workshop will also be a planning session for those who are interested in regularly attending a Colour Me Local Gardeners’ and Dyers’ club. If you know anyone who may be interested, please send them this invitation! All are welcome to join.
 
The fee for this workshop is $15 to cover the cost of materials. Please confirm your attendance by filling out the form below.
 
Plants for the natural dyes come from the Colour Me Local Dye Garden, installed earlier this year by Still Moon Arts. For more information about the dye garden, visit our Colour Me Local page.
 
The Alder Eco-Arts Hub is an East Vancouver Fieldhouse Studio generously donated by the Vancouver Parks Board, and shared by Still Moon Arts Society, Resurfacing History, and the Still Creek Streamkeepers. We are funded by a grant from the BC Arts Council – all our workshops are subsidized. The building and bathrooms are accessible, with no stairs and wide doorways.
